    I have been working at Winthrop University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Faculty! I really felt comfortable living and working in Rock Hill

    Cons

    None that I can think of. The pay wasn't high but what you'd expect as an adjunct

    I have been working at Winthrop University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Staff is amazing, very family driven, seems like a team within your department. Students are fun and seem to be interested in developing.

    Cons

    Administration is awful. There is no leadership currently. Board of Trustees is too involved with day to day decisions. Current President insulates himself from risk by not making any decisions and sending everything to some committee or outside consultant.
    Pay is horrendous. Do not take care of their own staff. Not a place to have a career.
    All executive administration is too concerned with patting each other on the back instead of improving their departments or sxhool. Lack support.

    Advice to Management

    Continue down the current path and it will only get worse. Have seen a lot of great workers leave due to Administration's ineptitude.

    Pros

    Gave me a little extra spending money in school

    Flexible scheduling

    Can get hard to balance the necessary GPA with actually tutoring people every week

    I have been working at Winthrop University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The job lets you do your homework while at work and requires very little work on your part. Your schedule can be whatever you want so it fits very well in between classes.

    Cons

    Management can be a bit of a pain. You have to check the labs every so often and if a manager comes in just before you check it and its in disarray you can get in trouble. You also make minimum wage with a 25 cent raise either every semester or year so you won't have oodles of spending money if you live off campus. Aside from that it isn't too bad.

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more chill at times. Also, you need to more clearly say what should and should not be done on the part of the lab ops, with the recent changes we've been getting so many mixed signals it's sometimes unclear whats allowed.

    Great environment and assistance from staff. Good communication with part-time faculty and easy to work for.

    I worked at Winthrop University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small campus atmosphere, and private school appearance. Core staff has been there for years giving it a family feel at times.

    Cons

    Most administrative processes are stuck in the 1980s. Don't expect modern adherence to HR or financial practices.

    Advice to Management

    Time for some new faces and real world modernization (not just the computers)

    Pros

    Enjoyed many of the people I worked with. Campus is nice.

    Cons

    Some areas of campus feel a bit outdated, rusting over. Bathrooms in Thurmond on some floors are in need of revamp.

    Pros

    Winthrop has a welcoming and open atmosphere. Most empoyers are very helpful and willing to get the best out of their staff members.

    Cons

    Experience varies depending on which Residence Hall you are working in. Personal preferences determine how well you will enjoy working with students from different class years.
